Arida Clemencia
Arida, 52, is a single mother but her children are all adults. Arida’s ancestors worked selling traditional meals and she wanted to continue the tradition since she believes it’s a very good business. She currently sells ceviche, a dish consisting of meat marinated in citrus juices. The most common ones are made from fish, seafood or both. Her work schedule now is every day starting in the morning; her son and another person help her.

The type of business is ceviche sales (sale of an Ecuadorean traditional dish) and she will use the loan to buy ingredients like fish, onions, etc. One of the difficulties is crime because it’s everywhere. Arida’s dream is to continue working in order to live better. She intends to help her children so that they will not become discouraged and continue making progress.
